Pre-season friendlies 2017

is it me on my own or is anyone else a little disappointed we only have two pre-season friendlies against bigger opposition?I would have rung up Bristol Rovers and gotten them down. In fact, we have very few preseason games at all really. No its not just you, but I think the days when we got premie...

Politics

Indeed the labour mp for the constituency served on the 16 member Kensington and Chelsea TMO whilst a councilor, as does a Conservative councilor maighread Condon-Simmonds. So what is your point. By the way I had seen on the BBC news that they did mention the MP's former position on the TMO on the d...

Score / attendance / 50's football

Except in the Leeds cup tie 2-2 at Elland Road and a thumping 4-0 win at Plainmoor. We reverted to the white and black strip then. Not sure why and don't know Leeds colours at the time, other than it wasn't white. Ironically in 1954/55, the year we changed to gold and blue, Leeds were using a virtu...

Score / attendance / 50's football

Good work Stefano. From there you can eliminate scores for 54/55 and 55/56 because we were playing in our blue and gold strip by then.

Not sure I agree entirely with Merse, nor Gullscorer for that matter but that is one cracking reply.
Agree with you about the cracking reply. One of the best postings I have ever read on any type of forum.

I think the signings will make people think twice, but also those that said maybe know that GI still want the freehold!

Encouraging start but we cant be complacent and take our eyes off the ball on what should be the most important signing, refusal of the freehold to GI!

Plainmoor match-day stewards

When we had gates of 10k you had the old bill who had to be paid for. Clubs went to stewarding because it was cheaper than the fuzz.

The likes of Tim Farron (who has admitted he will do everything he can to thwart Brexit) now claiming a part in the upcoming negotiations is hypocritical in the extreme.
Not much danger of that now, although to be frank I would be surprised if anyone even noticed he was gone.

The next General Election: who will you vote for?

I cannot see the Tory rank and file electing an openly gay leader, and on top of that they would need a by election for Davidson to be elected to the commons first.

The next General Election: who will you vote for?

Corbyn said he would take us out of the single market and end free movement; I understand this is in his manifesto. No mandate for soft Brexit. Interesting. The hard left of the labour party has always been eurosceptic. Remember the first referendum in 1975 was called by Wilson to appease his left ...

The next General Election: who will you vote for?

UKIP annihilated, NHS saved (albeit in the short term), no elected party better than a bad elected party. This election delivered in droves! Be careful of what you wish for. May will be disposed of as Tory leader before the year is out, possibly around the time of the annual conference. Remember it...

The next General Election: who will you vote for?

My hope, and it's probably a forlorn one, is that everybody in these Islands (including the Republic) off the west coast of Europe will be either united, perhaps in a federation of local nations, or independent as each may wish but united in a local trading bloc, and trading not only with Europe bu...

New shirt Sponsor

Given what Nike did to the England kit I wouldn't hold my breathe that this is going to look good.
Probably be yellow with blue sleeves, yellow shorts, blue stockings.

The next General Election: who will you vote for?

As for Nicola Sturgeon and the Scottish Nationalists, their bubble was always bound to burst sometime, and their obsession with independence combined with a crazy adherence to EU membership was their undoing: for example, Scotland's free trade with the rest of the UK far outweighs its free trade wi...

So the people have spoken. What they have actually said is beyond me.
